PARADISE, Calif. -- Paradise businesses are beginning to open this week for the first time since the Camp Fire.

There aren’t many businesses that are open back in Paradise, but for those that are, owners told Action News Now it’s important to keep their services going for the community.

Businesses such as Paradise Bikes, Auto Zone, Stop and Shop and O’Reiley’s are located on the Skyway and opened this week.

Reopening is a slow-going process, business owners told Action News Now, because several owners lost their homes in the fire as well.

Action News Now spoke with the business owner of Stop and Shop Wednesday and asked him why he decided to reopen his store.

"Customers say please, please we want to buy something so we can stay 3 to 4 hours," said Inderbal Rajbut, owner of Stop and Shop.

Rajbut said he doesn’t have internet and can’t use credit cards so he is cash only for now.
